Lincoln Heights Brewery ArtWalk

Lincoln Heights Brewery ArtWalk
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Lincoln Heights is outside of the San Gabriel Valley but it’s really only a skip and a jump, so we’re including this week’s Brewery Artwalk  because a cold brew on a hot day is divine and art always fills the creative well and nourishes the soul. The Brewery ArtWalk is described as “an alternative venue […]

Bellissimo!

Bellissimo!

For many of us, the arrival of spring is welcome not just for the poppies and tulips, but because of the upcoming home and garden tours. On May 3rd, the Altadena Guild presents Bellissimo! where guests may “explore the magnificent homes and gardens residing within the original Sphinx Ranch of northeastern Altadena…nestled around the Midlothian […]

A Chat with Jackalope Art Fair Co-founder Sara Vausbinder

A Chat with Jackalope Art Fair Co-founder Sara Vausbinder

Once upon a time, three young women—Sara Vausbinder, Laura Fischer, and Melissa Shipley—worked together for an international arts organization. Their job? Creating art-centered events in major cities around the country. Now they’ve banded together, returned home to their native backyards (Pasadena, Phoenix, and Denver respectively), and founded the Jackalope Art and Craft Fair. The Pasadena […]

Hello Dolly!

Hello Dolly!

I don’t know if you call these Hello Dollies or 7-layer cookie bars or coconut chocolate nut bars, but whatever you want to call them, they are a mighty delicious, decadent dessert. It took all of 5 minutes to throw together and after 28 minutes of baking, they were ready to go. Fridge: 1½ sticks […]

A Day at the Getty

A Day at the Getty

It was spring, it was a lovely temperature with a blue sky above, and it was our day at the Getty. It felt as though it had been eons since we’d stepped onto the tram and silently zoomed up the hill face to visit the J. Paul Getty Museum. Though is was early, our quartet […]

5,000 SF of Delight: PMRRC’s Open House

5,000 SF of Delight: PMRRC’s Open House

We remember coming down the steep stairs of our grandparents’ 1820 home and seeing a length of model railroad cars, a caboose, and an engine on a horizontal shelf, then walking into the enclosed sun room with an extended oval track set lovingly on the mantle above the fireplace than ran the whole width of […]

Vegan Beer Fest: Does 2 + 2 = 5?

Vegan Beer Fest: Does 2 + 2 = 5?

When we first read “vegan” and “beer” together in a description about a beer and food festival, we were thrown sideways. This just didn’t compute. Doesn’t beer trigger visions of overpriced ballpark dogs at a Dodgers’ game? Or a cooler of cold brews at a clambake on the beach, six-packs and pizzas, or a Negra […]

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

Ulla’s Spring & the Ancestors

We admit, we’ve got it bad for Ulla. Let us clarify, Ulla’s Art. Ulla Anobile herself is quite wonderful with a dry wit, which is perhaps thanks to her Finnish origins and for which we then thank her Finnish ancestors. And speaking of ancestors, besides sharing her images of the arrival of spring, Ulla is […]

The Knitterati

Pritchard Trio at The Fretted Frog

Pritchard Trio at The Fretted Frog

We had the opportunity to attend a fundraiser for Light Bringer Project where the featured musician was David Pritchard. The guitars were acoustic and Pritchard, along with Kevin Tiernan and Ioannis Markoulakis to make up the Pritchard Trio, seemed to venture from gentle jazz and Latin, classical and folk, to blues and slightly country. The […]
